The times we live in…
• The world has become more uncertain for doing business • Natural disaster, technical disasters and politics push us for constant look out and to monitoring risks • Hard job for treasurers – how to hedge against business and economic risks?
• When and how to raise funds and what cash to hold and where to hold it?
• It got very complex…
Even more Risks ahead…
• European sovereign debt crisis • Impact on the Euro versus your home currency • Constraints on fiscal policies and austerity plans • Regulations may have unintended outcomes – e.g. higher capital requirements for banks, squeeze the real economy • Are there risk free assets out there?
• Does our old economics model still work in light of this global crisis in 1920/1930 style?
Just a look on the current debt crisis – will make us careful… 8
Regulations: Market Themes and Drivers for 2012
Sovereign debt is a huge issue for most developed economies and there ’s a risk of government default in a number of European countries. The potential for Euro fragmentation and impact of this change on the markets and countries economies.
Regulatory costs and uncertainty
As banks implement Basel III and write down European bond holdings, the availability of capital for profit generation will fall significantly. Controls over proprietary trading and restrictions on internalization will hit profits hard in investment banking operations. There ’s uncertainty over new regulation, particularly in relation to OTC Derivatives trading (e.g. Dodd Frank in the US) which is making it hard for participants in these markets to plan and allocate expenditure for 2012.
Rising cost of participation in OTC markets
In the US and Europe, certain OTC Derivatives trades will need to be executed on a regulated trading platform, cleared through a Central Counterparty and reported to a trade repository. Non-cleared trades may be subject to additional capital charges. This increased complexity will drive up costs, and greater transparency is likely to put further pressure on margins.
G20 RECOMMENDED REGULATORY CHANGES • In September 2009 the G20 recommended reforms to address the concerns raised during the Credit Crisis, with an end 2012 deadline for implementation • The G20 reforms look to have the following impact: • A change to the OTC Derivatives trading workflow • An increase in transparency • Greater supervision of banks • Other areas under scrutiny • Limiting proprietary trading , commodity trading, high-frequency trading, short selling and dark pools • More focus on Hedge Funds, Private Equity Funds and Credit rating agencies

1 MARKET OVERVIEW (MICRO/MACRO)
Corporate Treasury teams need to keep abreast of the multiple markets they cover
Corporate Treasurers have to keep a 'big picture' overview of the markets
• You need to make decisions to effectively manage the finances of your corporation and understand what your exposure is across a variety of regions and product markets • You need to be aware of the market’s evolving perception of your firm relative to your peer group 15
Keep the overview
2 FX OPERATIONS & FX EXPOSURE MANAGEMENT
Corporate Treasury teams need more information to understand FX Exposure and manage FX operations
FX Risk management is increasingly important following the financial crisis
• Corporate Treasury teams need better information to understand & manage FX exposures and execute FX flows • As corporations expand their global footprint through off shoring or broadening their distribution, they increase their exposure to a larger number of currencies and the risk management process becomes more complex 17
3 SHORT-TERM FUNDING AND INTEREST RATE EXPOSURE MGMT
New benchmarks for understanding and managing short term funding & interest rate risk
Treasurers must understand the factors that are driving interest rate trends and have access to the pricing and tools that will help them quickly analyze specific funding options for short term investment decisions
• You need to understand and analyze specific funding options so you can make the optimal recommendations to internal stakeholders • The level, shape and volatility of yield curves for the cash and derivatives markets in which the firm operates will drive decisions on how to manage interest rate risk most effectively 19
4 LONG-TERM FUNDING AND CAPITAL STRUCTURE ANALYSIS 5 INDUSTRY PEER RELATIVE VALUE ANALYSIS
Long term funding and credit worthiness
Since the credit crisis, accessing credit is more important yet more difficult. Corporate Treasury, now more than ever, need to monitor the credit worthiness of companies with whom they have financial exposure
• Understanding, from a capital structure standpoint, how a company compares to its peers and how the market perceives its relative financial prospects (and therefore its credit risk) helps a Corporate Treasurer take a stand on a given entity • The Corporate Treasurer needs to access the availability of credit for your own company. Being able to see how the company has been positioned against other entities and benchmarks in the market helps them determine how to manage their own books and make future projections 21

6 TREASURY MANAGEMENT, RISK MANAGEMENT & PORTFOLIO MGMT
Accurately tracking Treasury, Risk & Portfolio activity
Corporate Treasurers predominantly manage their treasury, risk & portfolio management activity through in house or third party systems that must be fed with timely and accurate market data.
• The analysis process must be created in a customizable format that can model your investment strategy and portfolio of products • The analytical systems are likely to be used by multiple departments and, therefore, must be compatible with other products and services being used within the organisation 23
7 INDUSTRY SPECIFIC INTELLIGENCE & OVERVIEW
Corporate Treasurers require industry specific intelligence in asset classes outside FX
Because Corporate Treasurers cover a broad range of assets within their portfolios, they will often need to investigate particular markets in more depth.
• Although FX is the main asset covered by Corporate Treasurers, Money Markets, Rates, C&E and Equities, all require constant monitoring. • A greater level of knowledge is sometimes needed within these peripheral markets if they are to understand their own risk exposure and, therefore, make sound recommendations to their stakeholders 24
